2006 Porsche 911 Carrera S (997) Coupe
3.8L 355HP DOHC FI Flat 6 Engine
6 Speed Manual Transmission
In its road test of the then new 997 S for 2005, Car and Driver magazine wrote, “…(this) is the best Carrera Porsche has ever built”.
With its special order Carmon Red Metallic exterior, you won’t see many others like this one, and its Stone Gray full leather interior complements it nicely. In addition to its extensive list of standard equipment, factory options include the Sport Chrono Package Plus, sport shifter, power and heated front seats, PCM Navigation, Bose sound system, Bluetooth phone connect, and LoJack.
This Carrera S will accelerate from 0-60 mph in 4.6 sec., with a top speed of 182 mph. With its bigger brakes, this model will decelerate too: road testing showed five successive stops from 70 mph, all in less than 160 feet. Car and Driver also wrote, “The sport mode also firms up the electronically self-adjusting shocks. In normal mode, the system is downright supple, varying the valve settings to smooth out ripples. Push the sport button, or just drive faster; the computer reads either signal and turns up the shock resistance. No Porsche before this one has ridden so serenely while also supplying this level of body control.”
Originally an Arizona car, its current owner acquired it in 2013, and it has not been driven in Michigan winters. It has been well cared for, and is in excellent condition. Included are a Porsche Certificate of Authenticity, the original window sticker, all books/manuals, service records, a car cover and two keys. A clean Carfax report with no accidents or issues is available on request.
